Meet the beautiful knights of Hwarang: The Beginning


You know what, I was wrong. Really wrong — to believe that Park Seo-joon (She Was Pretty) was good-looking in only a quirky, unconventional way, and not at all the pretty-boy way.

Because looking at these freshly released promo images for KBS’s upcoming drama Hwarang: The Beginning, I found him fitting right in to the role of a Silla-era “beautiful knight” (a literal translation of Hwarang), albeit nearly unrecognizable in the sageuk getup. (I kept looking for him, wondering which one he was!)

But I present to you Exhibit A:


Hwarang: The Beginning features a central cast of six Hwarang warriors — Silla military bands that were comprised of young men known for, among other things, being beautiful — led by Park Seo-joon playing a character named Moo-myung. (That seems to be a popular naming choice in sageuks, in that it means Nameless and gets to sound cool.) He approaches life with a “you only love once” mentality that gives him the relentlessness of a dog and the free spirit of a bird.

He’ll fall into a loveline with our heroine Go Ara (You’re All Surrounded, who’ll play a woman named Aro (that’ll be easy to remember) whose parentage is half-lowly and half-royal, with a frank, straightforward personality. He starts out wanting to protect her, which turns to love.

Park Hyung-shik (High Society) forms a love triangle with Park Seo-joon and Go Ara, playing a man who “takes off the fate of a faceless king.” His King Jinheung character ruled Silla from 540 to 576 A.D., and takes on a secret identity to keep himself safe from the threats on his life. He’s a lonely soul, not trusting others easily and keeping his true self concealed, making him a sensitive and prickly addition to the Hwarang gang, although he will gradually transform into a strong man and leader.

Min-ho (Because It’s the First Time) plays an aristocrat born with a silver spoon in his mouth (well, the metaphor is golden spoon in Korean), and is described as hot-blooded and chivalrous. He’s called a playboy by everyone, but is actually a pure-hearted young man who’s devoted in love to one woman.

Do Ji-han (Basketball), meanwhile, is the cold-blooded one of the group, having been taught politics from an early age with an emphasis on seeking power. Though he’s intellectual and competitive, in the face of a fateful love, he can abandon that coldness. (So are all the men going to be leveled by romantic love in this drama?)

Jo Yoon-woo (I Order You) is the one with a beautiful exterior and mysterious aura — and an unexpectedly sharp tongue — meant to incite our curiosity. And rounding out the group is V of idol group Bangtan Boys (BTS), the maknae of the group who’s described as “fresh and clear like a ray of sunlight.” Resident puppy, check.

Looks like a pretty diverse mix of personalities — it’s almost like a sageuk boy band, brought together to cover as many fan tastes as possible. Hey, not that I’m complaining about lots of pretty boys. They’re pretty for historical accuracy! It’s not at all about me being shallow at all, nope.

Hwarang: The Beginning will be entirely pre-produced and will air on KBS later this year, though a timeslot has yet to be assigned.

KBS's upcoming new historical drama 'Hwarang' has officially kicked off, in previously revealed character posters, and now photos from its 1st & 2nd script reading.

A representative of 'Hwarang's production staff relayed, "In two separate script reading sessions, the staff, actors, and actresses were able to grasp one another's teamwork and synergy. Everyone was so immersed in the lines, including episodes surpassing just plain humor or seriousness and various scenes of give and take, so much that the 4-hour script reading session felt like nothing. We'll create a brilliant story of youth love and growth."

"Flower Knights: The Beginning" script reading, with special appearance by Lee Gwang-soo


The new KBS 2TV drama "Flower Knights: The Beginning" had a reading session.

The reading session was attended by writer Park Eun-yeong-I, director Yoon Seong-sik, Park Seo-joon, Ko Ah-ra, Hyung Sik, Minho, Jo Yoon-woo, V, Kim Ji-soo, Choi Won-yeong, Kim Chang-wan, Kim Kwang-gyoo, Yoo Jae-myeong and others.

"Flower Knights: The Beginning" is based on the flower knights of the 1500s about their love, passion and growth.

Park Seo-joon takes on the role of Moo-myeong and Ko Ah-ra is the cheery Aro.

Hyung Sik is the serious but cheerful faceless king Sam Maek Jong. Minho is a passionate knight named Soo-ho who is innocent but passionate at the same time.

Kim Ji-soo takes on the role of Empress Jiso, while Choi Won-yeong is Ahn Ji-gong. Kim Chang-wan, Yoo Jae-myeong and Kim Kwang-gyoo take the base, solidifying the drama even more.

Kim Ji-soo and Choi Won-yeong were stable with their lines and were able to bring out the emotions in their characters.

"Flower Knights: The Beginning" is full of joyful youth. Do Ji-han read the lines of Ban-ryu, Shilla's cold-city guy like a pro and Jo Yoon-woo did her part as Yeo-wool. V plays the youngest flower knight Han-seong.

Lee Gwang-soo appears in the drama for a short while as Mak-moon, a key individual responsible for Moo-myeong becoming a flower knight.

"Flower Knights: The Beginning" script reading proved the group would be able to work together as a team and there was never once a boring moment.

"Flower Knights: The Beginning" will be broadcast near the end of 2016.

Someone saw Park Hyungsik and Go Ara filming at folk village yesterday. cr weibo

Hyungsik's hairstyle seemed quite different from the official photos? 

The owner of the below photos mentioned Hyungsik is very tall, very thin and has very fair skin. Go Ara has a very small face and she is very pretty.  

No confirmed air date yet. Will wrap up filming by August so  most probably we will not get to watch this drama until Oct/Nov. I hope we will not have to wait till 2017.Cf23oQoUEAAuvyu.jpgCf23oQpUYAAxxW8.jpg

The only movie I saw with Hwarang in it was "Frozen Flower" I was happy to see the clean version rated PG13 but it was very interesting about the Hwarang. The only thing what was negative was the history of the movie the real Sila history wasn't like that. I will sure watch this drama looks good.

Seems like this upcoming hits drama is going to ride the popularity wave too. Lovely casts..... Interesting stories....and pre-produced. Some news even said it will as huge as dots. 

Park Seo-Joon, he was doing really great in SWP and met him first in drama he starred with Uhm Jung-Hwa.

Parks Hyung-Sik, everytime Heirs come to my mind I also recognize the sly and funny Myung-So 

Go Ara, do,we need to question her charm??? 

Choi Min-Ho, only interested on him at Because It's the First Time but seeing his picture character in him cause my curiousity rise. 

Truthfully I am never be a big fan of saegeuk drama, but this one offer me something different. I will anticipate this one.
